Use of Standards in Evaluation of School Leaders, Preparation Programs, and/or Other Purposes
In 2011-2012, all Michigan districts implemented teacher and administrator evaluation systems. The educator evaluation legislation states that districts must use "multiple rating categories that take into account data on student growth as a significant factor." The legislation does not specify the use of specific standards for evaluating administrators, but the evaluation must be based at least in part on proficiency in evaluating teachers, progress on school improvement, attendance rates, and stakeholder feedback.
